CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION

This application claims priority to and the benefit of Korean Patent Application No. 10-2010-0055494 filed in the Korean Intellectual Property Office on Jun. 11, 2010, the entire contents of which are incorporated herein by reference.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

(a) Field of the Invention

The present invention relates to a channel allocation method and device using wireless access in a vehicular environment. Particularly, the present invention relates to a channel allocation method and device for handover by a base station in communication between the base station and a vehicle using wireless access in the vehicular environment.

(b) Description of the Related Art

The wireless access in vehicular environments (WAVE) method supports communication of fast running vehicles, and is configured with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.11p and the IEEE 1609. In this instance, the IEEE 1609.3 of the IEEE 1609 defines a network layer and a transport layer service, and the IEEE 1609.4 provides a multichannel operation.

A WAVE-applied traffic system can provide a seamless service to the vehicle in vehicle to vehicle (V2V) communication and vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) communication.

The WAVE uses a control channel (CCH) and a plurality of service channels (SCH). In detail, a service provider notifies service provision by using a WAVE service announcement (WSA) message periodically transmitted by a control channel, and a user periodically monitors the control channel to access a plurality of service channels.

For example, at least one onboard unit (OBU) provided in the vehicle traveling on the roadway analyzes the WSA message, assigns a channel with a high service priority based on the analysis result, and uses the assigned channel to receive the service seamlessly.

However, when the onboard unit receives the WSA message from two roadside units (RSU) while the roadside units are installed on both sides of the road, the method for performing a handover from the communicating roadside unit to another roadside unit cannot provide a seamless service.

The above information disclosed in this Background section is only for enhancement of understanding of the background of the invention and therefore it may contain information that does not form the prior art that is already known in this country to a person of ordinary skill in the art.

Hereinafter, a channel allocation method and device using the wireless access in vehicular environments (WAVE) according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to the accompanying drawings.

FIG. 1 shows a WAVE-based communication environment according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

The communication environment according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention represents a vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) communication environment based on the WAVE communication method.

The communication environment according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention includes a WAVE service server 100, at least one roadside unit (RSU0-RSU2) 200, and at least one onboard unit (OBU) 300. Here, at least one RSU 200 is installed on the roadside at regular intervals. Also, at least one OBU 300 can be provided inside or outside the vehicle, and it communicates with the RSU 200 or another OBU.

The at least one RSU 200 periodically transmits a WAVE service announcement (WSA) message to the control channel (CCH). Here, the WAS message includes a corresponding RSU, a service provided by the RSU, and a service channel (SCH) number through which the service is provided.

For example, when one RSU and an adjacent RSU use the same service channel for the same service, the communication is disconnected by interference in the section where the service area is overlapped. Also, it is impossible to perform a continuous handover in this section. The adjacent RSU's transmit the WSA message by using different channels for the same service.

As shown in FIG. 1, the first RSU (RSU0) provides a switched virtual channel (SVC) at a first channel f1, and the second RSU (RSU1) adjacent to the first RSU (RSU0) provides an SVC corresponding to the same service at a second channel f2. A third RSU (RSU2) adjacent to the second RSU (RSU1) provides an SVC corresponding to the service at the first channel f1. Also, each RSU generates corresponding WSA messages (WSA0, WSA1, WSA) at a reference channel f0 assigned as a control channel (CCH).

In the above-noted communication environment, the OBU 300 of the vehicle receiving the service that corresponds to the SVC receives the service through the first channel f1 in the first communication area of the first RSU (RSU0), and receives the service through the first channel f1 or the second channel f2 in the overlapped area of the first communication area of the first RSU (RSU0) and the second communication area of the second RSU (RSU1). The OBU 300 of the vehicle receives the service through the second channel f2 in the second communication area of the second RSU RSU1 to consecutively perform the handover.

Particularly, the channel allocation method in the overlapped area of the first communication area of the first RSU (RSU0) and the second communication area of the second RSU (RSU1) is to assign a channel in order for the OBU 300 of the vehicle to receive the service through the second channel f2 on the first channel f1 based on the received signal strength indication (RSSI).

A method for processing a WSA message between at least one RSU 200 and an OBU 300 will now be described with reference to FIG. 2.

FIG. 2 shows a message process flowchart between at least one RSU and an OBU according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

As shown in FIG. 2, the first RSU (RSU0) generates a first WSA message on the reference channel f0 assigned as the control channel, and transmits the first WSA message to the OBU 300 (S201). The second RSU (RSU1) generates a second WSA message on the reference channel f0 assigned as the control channel, and transmits the second WSA message to the OBU 300 (S202). In this instance, the first WSA message and the second WSA message respectively include a service provided by the corresponding RSU (RSU0 or RSU1) and a service channel (SCH) number for providing the service.

Based on the WSA message, the OBU 300 assigns the service channel (SCH) as the first channel f1 (S203), and exchanges information with the first RSU (RSU0) through the assigned first channel f1 (S204).

Also, the second RSU (RSU1) generates a third WSA message on the reference channel f0 assigned as a control channel, and transmits the third WSA message to the OBU 300 (S205). The second RSU (RSU1) generates a fourth WSA message on the reference channel f0 assigned as a control channel, and transmits the fourth WSA message to the OBU 300 (S206).

Based on the WSA message, the OBU 300 assigns the service channel (SCH) as the second channel f2 (S207), and exchanges information with the second RSU (RSU1) through the assigned second channel f2 (S208).

Therefore, the at least one RSU 200 generates a WSA message on the reference channel f0, and broadcasts the WSA message. Also, based on the received WSA message, the OBU 300 assigns a service channel and exchanges information through the assigned service channel.

The OBU 300 in the channel allocation device using the WAVE will now be described in detail with reference to FIG. 3.

FIG. 3 shows a block diagram of a configuration of an onboard unit for receiving a WSA message according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

As shown in FIG. 3, the OBU 300 includes a message receiver 310, a message processor 320, a storage unit 330, a channel processor 340, and a controller 350.

The message receiver 310 receives a WSA message from at least one RSU 200.

The message processor 320 extracts information on respective services provided by the corresponding RSU from the received WSA message, and generates an available service table based on the extracted information. Here, the available service table includes information on the service provided by at least one RSU 200, for example, a provider service ID (PSID), a priority, and a service channel number. The message processor 320 stores the available service table in the storage unit 330.

The channel processor 340 checks the service that corresponds to the service registered by the user from the available service table, and selects the service channel (SCH) in consideration of the priority of the service.

The controller 350 transmits/receives information to/from the corresponding RSU 200 through the service channel selected by the channel processor 340.

A channel allocation method using the WAVE will now be described with reference to FIG. 4.

FIG. 4 shows a flowchart of a channel allocation method using the WAVE according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, and FIG. 5 shows an available service table according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

The communication environment according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention includes at least one RSU 200 and an OBU 300, and the at least one RSU 200 transmits a WSA message to the OBU 300 through the control channel (CCH).

As shown in FIG. 4, the OBU 300 receives a WSA message from at least one RSU 200 (S401). The OBU 300 uses the WSA message to generate an available service table (S402). The available service table in this instance us expressed in FIG. 5.

In detail, the OBU 300 extracts information on the respective services provided by the corresponding RSU from the WSA message. The OBU 300 generates an available service table based on the extracted information. In this instance, the available service table includes information on the services provided by at least one RSU 200, such as a PSID, priority, and a service channel number. Also, the OBU 300 includes an aging function for deleting corresponding information from the available service table when the WSA message is not received from a predetermined period.

When receiving the WSA messages from a plurality of RSU's, the OBU 300 calculates the received signal strength indication (RSSI) and the average RSSI (avg_RSSI) and records them. The OBU 300 selects the RSU to access by using the calculated RSSI and the average RSSI.

The OBU 300 updates the available service table with the service that corresponds to the PSID based on the user service information (S403).

The OBU 300 determines whether the updated available service table has a plurality of RSU's entries for providing the WSA message (S404).

When the updated available service table has a plurality of RSU's, the OBU 300 compares corresponding average RSSI of the respective RSU's to select the RSU to access (S405). As shown in FIG. 5, two RSU entries generated by the OBU 300 based on the WSA message from the first RSU (RSU0) and the second RSU (RSU1) in the available service table.

The OBU 300 compares the average RSSI (58) of the first RSU (RSU0) and the average RSSI (26) of the second RSU (RSU1) to select the first RSU (RSU0). The OBU 300 compares the average RSSI in order to prevent the access to the RSU from being frequently changed in the environment where the RSSI values are substantially changed. The OBU 300 can then minimize the delay time required to access the RSU through a link.

When the RSU to access is selected, the OBU 300 searches the PSID with the highest priority from among the service provided by the selected RSU, and selects a channel number corresponding to the searched PSID (S406). As shown in FIG. 5, the OBU 300 accesses the selected first RSU (RSU0), and selects the channel number “2” corresponding to the PSID having the greatest priority (512) from among the service provided by the first RSU (RSU0).

The OBU 300 assigns the selected channel as a service channel (SCH) (S407), and exchanges information with the corresponding RSU (S408).

Accordingly, the channel allocation method according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention controls the OBU to assign the service channel and access the corresponding RSU. Further, the channel allocation method assigns the service channel based on the RSSI to allow continuous access to another RSU when the OBU changes the access to the other RSU.

An equation and algorithm for calculating the RSSI and average RSSI according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention are expressed in Equation 1, but the present invention is not restricted thereto.
avg_RSSInew(RSUn)=avg_RSSIold(RSUn)×(1−Wc)+current_RSSI(RSUnWc
avg_RSSInew(RSUn+1)=avg_RSSIold(RSUn+1)×(1−Wc)+current_RSSI(RSUn+1Wc  (Equation 1)

If (avg_RSSInew(RSUn)<avg_RSSInew(RSUn+1) then Handover (RSUn+1)

Else stay (RSUn)

Wc represents the weight of current_RSSI (1<Wc<=1)

Since the RSSI value changes abruptly when the vehicle runs fast, frequent changes of the access to the RSU when the RSSI of the currently accessed RSU is steeply reduced or when the signal of the next RSU is strongly received can be prevented when the algorithm expressed in Table 1 according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention is used.

A handover process corresponding to the RSSI and average RSSI will now be described with reference to FIG. 6.

FIG. 6 shows a graph of a handover process according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

The horizontal axis of the graph represents the distance between the OBU 300 and the corresponding RSU, and the vertical axis represents the RSSI (dBi).

As shown in FIG. 6, the first graph (A) indicates the RSSI of the first RSU (RSU0), and the second graph (B) shows the RSSI of the second RSU (RSU1). Also, the third graph (C) shows the average RSSI (avg_RSSI (RSU0)) of the first RSU (RSU0), and the fourth graph (D) indicates the average RSSI (avg_RSSI (RSU1)) of the second RSU (RSU1).

When the RSSI of the first RSU (RSU0) is equal to the RSSI of the second RSU (RSU1) or the average RSSI of the first RSU (RSU0) is greater than the average RSSI of the second RSU (RSU1), the OBU 300 assigns the service channel (SCH) as the first channel f1 based on the first WSA message. In this instance, the first WSA message is generated from the reference channel f0 assigned as a control channel by the first RSU RSU0. The OBU 300 exchanges information with the first RSU (RSU0) through the first channel f1.

Also, when the RSSI of the first RSU (RSU0) is greater than the RSSI of the second RSU (RSU1) or the average RSSI of the first RSU (RSU0) is equal to the average RSSI of the second RSU (RSU1), the OBU 300 exchanges information with the first RSU (RSU0).

However, when the RSSI of the first RSU (RSU0) is less than the RSSI of the second RSU (RSU1) or the average RSSI of the first RSU (RSU0) is less than the average RSSI of the second RSU (RSU1), the OBU 300 selects the second RSU RSU1 based on the RSSI or the average RSSI.

The OBU 300 accesses the second RSU (RSU1), and performs a handover of the second RSU (RSU1) at the first RSU (RSU0). The OBU 300 exchanges information with the second RSU (RSU1) through the second channel f2.

According to an embodiment of the present invention, the channel allocation method and device using the wireless access in the vehicular environment assigns the service channel based on the received signal strength and thereby provides the seamless service when the onboard unit performs a handover from the communicating roadside unit to another roadside unit.

Also, according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the channel allocation method and device can minimize the delay time generated during access by preventing frequent changes of access to the roadside unit in an environment with substantial changes of received signal strength.

The above-described embodiments can be realized through a program for realizing functions corresponding to the configuration of the embodiments or a recording medium for recording the program in addition to through the above-described device and/or method, which is easily realized by a person skilled in the art.

While this invention has been described in connection with what is presently considered to be practical exemplary embodiments, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited to the disclosed embodiments, but, on the contrary, is intended to cover various modifications and equivalent arrangements included within the spirit and scope of the appended claims.
